Overview


From "Flitterbugs" and "Flutterbys" for beginners to the "Art Nouveau Poppy" for the advanced, crafters of all skill levels can create stunning butterflies with the more than 30 designs offered here. Whether used for quilting, appliqué, embroidery, or china painting, these designs allow crafters to create brilliant art in their own medium. Each design is accompanied by a pattern that can be exported for any craft that requires defined segments for each change of color or texture. Crafters who are challenged by creating their own designs will find inspiration in the accompanying verses and examples of completed work. Many of the patterns also offer an art nouveau flair.

It boils down to a series of carefully chosen compromises and Jillian Sawyer clearly has a gift for it." —Jim Matthews, marketing director, Spectrum Glass Company
